    I have never owned a good cordless drill. I have a $4 unit I got from my Albetson days. It was on clearance so why not. I was thinking about getting a Dewalt impact plus drill kit but I don't need the impact right away. I don't mind spending a bit of cash on something good. What do you guys use?

    I have craftsman, dewalt and makita...

    The best drills we've ever owned and used have been the dewalt hands down. A bit expensive (depending on which one you get or need) but it was worth it

    I have two ryobi cordless impacts..one for home and one for work. The one for work is used all day long, had it for a year and a half and just recently noticed battery life sucking. Considering the use and abuse I have put that impact through I'm not complaint. The home impact is used a lot and also goes with me on the trail as part of my tool bag. I also have a ryobi cordless drill that has never giving me any troubles, that one also goes in the tool bag for the trail. And last but not least, I have a ryobi cordless leaf blower and weed whacker that kicks ass lol.

    Top of list I would recommend dewalt obviously then hilti, ryobi, Nikita, craftsman..anything under craftsman is just whatever...

    Ryobi huh? I always heard their stuff was junk. Well the guy was talking about a table saw.

    I have a craftsman I got for my birthday like 10 years ago and I am still on the original two batteries. With pretty heavy use, my only complaint is the bulk of the drill the new ones are nice and light.

    About 2 years ago I picked up some Ryobi stuff drill, impact, cricular saw and the batteries will not hold a charge very long now. I am thinking of picking up the lithium Ion batteries to see if they last any longer.

    Hmmm. I guess it doesn't really matter what brand I get because I won't use them too often. I just like overkill.:D

    If was to buy a replacement for my current setup I would go with either Rigid or Dewalt. They will last forever!

    I'm used to seeing impacts with a standard drive at the end but this has some kind of quick release.

    The quick release is ****ing nice...you can switch from 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 drive thingys so you can use what ever socket size you need. Plus there's also tons of various bits that utilize the quick release..

    On an impact?

    Well I figured the drill would handle those duties.

    I am only considering the kit because it is a massive $10 difference. Lol.

    Here is the impact:

    Ok impact DRIVER vs a standard impact. I wasn't understanding the difference.
